"On the Tequila" as written by Alanis Morissette and Guy Sigsworth....
Bring on the tequila, oh
On fire on tequila, oh

My friends and I meet hours before
We make some home made pizza
We do some funny bits back and forth
My knees buckle I laugh so hard

We might end three sheets to wind
And who knows where we'll wind up
All I know is there's a car waiting
And we'll figure that out after

I have to keep my eye
On my old friend from high school
We've known each other for the longest time
She has trouble with her dance so to speak

She can hoist a really good kick
In the butt when she's excited
She doesn't do it so much anymore
'Cause we're all on to her

Bring on the tequila, oh
On fire on tequila, oh
Mostest most on tequila, oh
Bestest friends on tequila, oh

Then there's my other pretty friend from high school
The predator in me is put to shame by the predator in her
And now I've reeled it in
It'll be interesting to see how much she's done as well

Then there's my friend from Chicago
God do I love all people from Chicago
All ready to light up the barbecue
And be harping on debauchery

Bring on the tequila, oh
On fire on tequila, oh
Mostest most on tequila, oh
Bestest friends on tequila, oh

Then there's my Canadian friend
What a fabulous mom she's become
She's been tortured in this sense
For the last many of months for obvious reasons

She was like "Hey, where was this part of you
When I wasn't pregnant"
I laughed and did a shot in her honor
As I conversed with her belly

Bring on the tequila, oh
On fire on tequila, oh
Mostest most on tequila, oh
Bestest friends on tequila, oh

Then there's my Cupid friend
She sure knows how to dress that one
She's a wise and worldly girl
But you gotta watch that medication

My favorite beverage is taken
To a whole other level on it
I'm not worried about it
Or I'll coast around the room
While I trust she'll temper

My brother came to visit me
And now he's used to hanging with me and cracking up
But he had no idea about my built up tolerance
No idea about how manipulative I've become

I would surreptitiously put it in front of him
Without him asking
In a pretty little shot glass
His smirk and cackle would only egg me on

Bring on the tequila, oh
On fire on tequila, oh
Mostest most on tequila, oh
Bestest friends on tequila, oh

    General Commentwhen i first heard the title of this song i was expecting somthing more, shall we say dark...but when i finished listening to the song i loved it and had to hear it again, and agian, and agian... I think this song sounded like an ode to her firends more then anything but i did get like a SFIJ or URS sound in it... anyway i like it.

    General CommentWhat a good song...just about having a good time...but yet Alanis always manages to add some self-reflection in her lyrics even when it's as shallow as a song about drinking and enjoying yourself with friends...once again, love her. She's the queen of my emotional expression hahaha!

    General CommentOh, boy; =here's= one to throw all those who "care about her state of mental health" (and such) in the wake of her (what? three-year?) =thang= with Ryan. "The ever-so-self-control-oriented (ask her) Alanis Morissette getting snockered on worm juice?" (!!!!!)

    BUT... Al does know about debauchery (ask her), and she knows about booze (it was Bailey's Irish Cream way back when). This may be a =very= disciplined young woman, but think "collegiate athlete" when you think Al + discipline. Some of the so-called "Alanis Comedy Hour" videos on YouTube make it clear she likes fun. This is =not= a dull girl.

    Should we take all the "journalism" here as gospel? Al says she contacts pretty much everybody she writes about to tell them they're gonna be in a song she's releasing, so maybe so. In whatever event, "OTT" shows how well she can describe what it's like to be disinhibited in her particular fashion. (IQ of 140+. It's =always= right there.)
